My goal as a therapist is to create a supportive environment for those who have been marginalized because of their gender and sexuality. Perhaps you identify as queer, bisexual , lesbian, gay, pansexual, asexual, trans, nonbinary, agender, poly, kinky, something else, everything, and/or nothing at all. You deserve to have a space where you can explore the different parts of yourself without judgment. As a queer person who has sought out my own therapy, I know how difficult it can be to find an affirming therapist. Even if your identity isn’t central to your therapeutic goals, know that every part of you will be affirmed in our work.

I specialize in lesbian, gay, bisexual , queer, transgender, and nonbinary individuals.
Psychoanalytic therapy is a mode of intensive listening that provides you with a protected space to say anything that comes to mind; it is a chance to explore thoughts and feelings that you previously have not been able to articulate to yourself and to others. Psychoanalysis is a unique, extraordinary relationship that facilitates the emergence of novel and surprising ways of seeing and thinking. Inhibitions and destructive conflicts in areas of creative pursuit, career, relationships, and sex dissipate, leading to new possibilities and experiences, and the alleviation of anxiety and suffering.

I have extensive experience working with lesbian, gay, bisexual , transgender, queer, non-binary and intersex individuals.
You are looking for help because you have reached a dead-end. Perhaps you are having trouble with an important relationship, or with your job. Perhaps you cannot get along with yourself. Whatever the difficulty, you realize at this point that you cannot sort things out on your own, and you are hoping that psychotherapy might help. I provide individual psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, a more intensive form of psychotherapeutic work. My job is to help you to find a way beyond the dead-end, so that you can ultimately move on from the limitations of your current situation.

I've been fortunate to work with a wide range of people, including those dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, self-esteem issues, sexual issues, sexual and gender identity exploration, health concerns, artistic blockages, addiction, parenting, and fertility issues.

Porn, fantasy, masturbation, love addiction, affairs, chat-room seductions, App hook-ups, paying for sex, and sexual avoidance keep countless of you straight, gay and bisexual men and women feeling shamed, and unable to fully connect emotionally and physically.
You want emotional intimacy but disappointment and blame distance you. You withdraw or act out sexually to avoid pain? Do romantic obsessions or resentment towards your partner/spouse fuel your inability to connect and feel loved? I reach out from my decades of experience with individuals and couples who are intimacy avoidant and I help resolve your past and present blocks to intimacy by facilitating the examination and change of life-long patterns in my safe office space. My willingness to listen, to observe, to enter your world with a structured understanding is my therapeutic strength that has transferred to online sessions.

"I have come to believe over and over again that what is most important to me must be spoken, made verbal and shared, even at the risk of having it bruised or misunderstood." - Audre Lorde. As people, we have a deep need to be understood, and one of the most profound ways to do this is in a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship. As a therapist, I work with individuals & couples using a psychodynamic approach. My role is to help you identify your needs and put your inner experience at the center, engaging both mind and body, so that barriers to your well-being can be lifted.

Part of my work is focused on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual , Transgender, Queer, Questioning, intersex, asexual, and all other identities of adults & young adults.
Daily and long-existent challenges can impact one’s sense of self and satisfaction. One’s relationships may also be harmed by frustration, anger, hopelessness, and anxiety that organically emerge. Human beings are multilayered organisms and I hold that each layer, in its unique form, contributes to the makeup of who you are or eventually whom you see yourself becoming as a whole person. Those layers are often blurred or forgotten due to the stressors that get in the way, but you continue to be the only person who truly knows what it means to live a life that feels authentic to you.

How can I find a therapist in New York?

Search for nearby therapists or counselors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or zip code; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
